Vegetarian Pizza Recipes: Snack-Sized

Try one of these snack-sized vegetarian pizza recipes when you are craving pizza. These quick snacks will save money and calories!

For all of the vegetarian pizza recipes below, you will need:

Bagel or English muffin (cut in half)

2-3 tablespoons of tomato sauce (canned or homemade)

1/4 cup of shredded Mozzarella cheese (or any kind of vegan cheese)

2-3 tablespoons of butter or non-dairy substitute (optional, but tasty)

General Guidelines

These ingredients are based on a single serving. Adjust measurements as needed.

Experiment with different types of cheeses. I prefer to use Mozzarella cheese for vegetarian pizza recipes because it melts well, but many other varieties will taste great.

Use more cheese, tomato sauce, or butter, if you think your vegetarian snack needs it. You can even make your pizza into a sandwich by putting the halves together.

Low-calorie Vegetarian Tip: Use low or zero-calorie butter spray instead. Add extra seasoning to enhance the flavor, if needed.

Tomato Basil

Melt butter in microwave for 15-20 seconds. Combine with garlic 1/4 teaspoon of garlic (fresh or dried) and 1/4 teaspoon of minced onion (fresh or dried) in a small bowl

Pour butter onto each half of bagel or English muffin, then spread each half with about 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce.

Sprinkle cheese on each side. Place 2-3 tomato slices from a medium to large, ripe tomato. Add a dash of basil on top of the tomatoes. Fresh or dried is fine. Of course, fresh is better.

Mushroom and "Pepperoni"

Drizzle melted butter and a dash of garlic over each half of bagel or English muffin. Spread tomato sauce on each side, then add the cheese on top of the sauce.

Top each half with mushroom slices and pieces of vegetarian pepperoni. Sprinkle add extra cheese if you like. Sometimes I layer the mushroom and pepperoni in between layers of cheese.

To do this, put mushroom slices on after the first layer of cheese, followed by the pepperoni slices and then more cheese on top.

Sweet Pineapple

Try this variation of Hawaiian or pineapple and ham pizza. If you've never had this before, it may sound strange. However, it's a wonderful combination of sweet and salty.

There are probably brands of vegetarian ham that you can add to this vegetarian pizza recipe, but I've never been a big fan of ham, so I just skip it.

Drizzle melted butter on each half of bagel or English muffin. Use a bit less of the tomato sauce for this recipe. Top both sides with cheese.

Add several tablespoons of chopped pineapple. Fresh is delicious, but a lot of trouble for such a small snack. Unless you have some on hand or are using some anyway for another recipe, I would use canned.

When using canned pineapple or any fruit, for any recipe really, look for one in juice. Canned fruits in juice, as opposed to syrup tend to have less sugar and fewer calories. (Be sure to drain the fruit prior to adding to the pizza.)

If you prefer cooler pineapple on your pizza, add this last and microwave it for 30-45 seconds right before eating or just add cool pineapple on your already heated pizza.

Vegelicious Pizza

You guessed it, drizzle melted butter with 1/4 teaspoon of garlic mixed in over each half of the bagel or English muffin. Then, spread each side with tomato sauce and sprinkle with cheese.

Top with tomato slices, chopped bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, onion, etc. Add an extra layer of cheese, if desired. Another option here is having multiple layers of cheese and vegetables.

Directions for Cooking Vegetarian Pizza Recipes Above

These can be cooked in the microwave, toaster oven or conventional oven. If you are cooking this in the oven, go ahead and preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

For crispier mini vegetarian pizzas in the microwave, toast them until golden-brown first. This can make all the difference and you still save time and effort.

Heat until cheese is melted. About 1 minute in the microwave on a microwave-safe dish, then for 30 second increments after that, if needed, until cheese is melted.

Vegetarian pizza recipes also make great vegetarian appetizers for social gatherings. They are even good for a nice vegetarian lunch or dinner. You can also use the same recipes listed above on larger pizzas.

There are so many variations to the above recipes and many more not included in this article.
